Install Bionic issues

Added by Oliver Wiley 3 months ago

Hi, my knowledge is a bit lacking when it comes to ubuntu/linux so please bare with me.
I'm installing:
the latest stable version of tvheadend (apparently 4.2.6)
onto Ubuntu Bionic LTS (18.4.1 AMDx64)
with a TBS6902 DVB-S2 PCI-e card

For now this is being done with a live usb stick as a dry run as the computer is built into the living room furniture so once i'm sure the drivers work then I'll do this with an actual hard drive. But if this is the reason for the issues I may have to pull the computer out of the furniture earlier than planned.

So I've installed the DVB card drivers as far as I can tell. (any recommendations on a small utility to test this would be handy)

I've followed the instructions on the tvheadend website to install from the doozer repository so far...

The roadblock I appear to have hit is that there are dependencies that are stopping the installation from completing (when I type "sudo apt-get install tvheadend")

The text feedback I get in terminal is:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies.
tvheadend : Depends: liburiparser1 (>= 0.6.0) but it is not installable
Depends: dvb-apps but it is not installable
Recommends: xmltv-util but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

After a quick google of liburiparser1 (and variations) has provided no help. I han't find this in the ubuntu software centre or any useful mention of it on the tvheadend website.

So this is where I'm currently stuck (I will update as I fail/succeed)

Just add this to command line

sudo add-apt-repository "deb $(lsb_release -sc) universe"
